About the Author: Amy Peterson became a stepmother in 1994 after unwittingly falling for a guy with four kids, ages three, five 13 and 15. Since many other stories about stepmotherhood were as uplifting as lead balloons, Amy’s goal was to write a humorous book filled with sound advice. Her four stepkids are all 21 and older, which provides evidence that at least some of her advice is well founded. Amy has been published in numerous magazines and does weekly blog postings about nature, pets and life at amylpeterson.com much of which is light-hearted. She works for the state of Michigan and owns a ghillie suit, which she claims she uses to take nature photos and scare unsuspecting guests. She lives with her husband and a variety of fuzzy animals, all of which provide great material for her next book. http://www.amylpeterson.com/
Amy is a 30-year-old woman with a career path, a balance in her checking, and a list of reasons why not to have children. Mark is an older, divorced guy with four kids, an Army cot for a bed, and enough fishing tackle to sink a small boat. Amy falls for Mark hook, line and hundreds of dollars in sinkers. From Zero to Four Kids in Thirty Seconds is a humorous yet compelling story about becoming an instant stepmother. It is a must read for stepmothers and future stepmothers, and a fun read for any woman who ended up with more fun and trouble than she bargained for.

My name is Ella Johnson. I started Mymcbooks to promote reading. As a former teacher, I know that making basic education fundamentals interesting to children can be challenging. Education can be fun, exciting and captivating for children with the right learning tools. So my goal is to “make learning interesting and fun” for the children while they learn, by introducing them to fun books with colorful and captivating illustrations.
In 2009, I start the giveaway program giving away free school supplies at random to 2 winners each year. I also started a monthly free giveaways for books and gifts.
August 2010, I extended the free school supplies from 2 to 5 winners at random on my blog and also give away 20 bags full of school supplies to familes in need at Chick-fil-A in Brandon, Florida during their family nights. And in 2012, I beat my that number and gave away a lot of school supplies to needy families. Hopefully, I can continue to do this each year.
In 2011, I started writing reviews on children’s books then giving these books away free on Mymcbooks Blog. I increase the number of books we giveaway free to help support parent. My goal is to give away as many as I can each year. This is also a great way to introduce parents to new books.
Mymcbooks blog is always looking for other ways to give kids free books. So I started Mymcbooks Birthday Library http://mymcbooksbirthdaylibrary.wordpress.com/
My goal is to giveaway at least 300 books to children each year.
